The Astor Cos. has completed Merrick Manor, a 10-story Class A building with 227 residences and nearly 20,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space in Coral Gables, Fla. The new move-in ready condominium asset, which is the largest residential project developed in Coral Gables in nearly a decade, has received its Temporary Certificate of Occupancy. Jaxi Builders was the project’s general contractor, with Behar Font & Partners serving as architect. Interiors by Steven G. designed and furnished the building’s lobby, common areas and model residences.
Located at 301 Altara Ave., just steps away from the Shops at Merrick Park, the property is 5 miles from downtown Miami via Dixie Highway and just 1 mile from the Country Club Section and its golf courses. Miami International Airport is within a 20-minute drive.
The developer has already sold more than 65 percent of Merrick Manor. The remaining units, with floorplans ranging from 574 to more than 3,400 square feet, have selling prices from $374,990 to $2.6 million.
The one- to four-bedroom luxury units feature built-in appliances, white quartz countertops and spacious terraces. Common-area amenities include valet parking and front desk concierge services, a lobby lounge area, business center, club lounge and news café lounge, fitness center and resort-style pool.
The building also has storm-related equipment such as emergency generators to fully power the ground-floor lobby and amenities floor. Security features include a Coral Gables Police Department substation on the ground floor and a covered and monitored parking garage.
In an interview with Multi-Housing News, The Astor Cos.’ President & CEO Henry Torres talked about the diverse demographics drawn to Merrick Manor. Ranging from locals to Northeasterners and Canadians, South Americans and Europeans, most buyers are empty-nesters looking for a vibrant lifestyle in the middle of a walkable neighborhood.
